Document Description
The proposed project proposes to upgrade the existing bike path to a Class 1 bike path in seven (7) phases. The California Transportation Highway Design Manual describes Class 1 as a pathway that is for "the exclusive use of bicycles and pedestrians." These guidelines suggest the following design criteria: a pathway, separated from vehicular traffic, of 8 feet or greater, for two-way travel, with an extension of 2-foot shoulders, minimum on either side. The existing bike trail lacks protective shoulders and varies in widths from 4-feet to 9-feet. Proposed amendments area to repair the existing bike trail with an Asphalt Concrete (AC) overlay, increase the trail to 10-feet and create a 2-foot decomposed granite shoulder at each side, at most locations. Those constrained portions of the bike trail not capable of widening will only consist of the overlay. Landscaping adjacent to the trail would be installed to provide summer shade. The plantings will consist of native plants such as Valley oaks, and western redbud and will also incorporate ornamentals when appropriate.
